Symbolically a gift of friendship and joy, a bouquet of yellow flowers can be made using a variety of flower species thanks to a wide choice of shades and tones. Look for yellow flowers in acacia, gladiolus and carnation species, as well as many more varieties and find shades ranging from pale buttery yellow to rich, deep gold.
